I want to buy a new phone as my iphone 5c (prepaid plan) was stolen. Do I need a parent autorisation (signature) to buy a phone with a prepaid plan?

Hello Jacinthe.

I don't think you need parents autorisation to buy a prepaid phone.

You don't but make sure your parents are aware that the other phone was stolen so they can deactivate it through self serve. Until they do, they'll be responsible for any overage charges the theif racks up. This is especially urgent if your phone was on postpaid, on prepaid the most that could happen is the theif would use up all your data and minutes.
